i’m stuck in a utah snowstorm today + loving every minute of it 🌨❄️
2019 is my year of yes. I made so many excuses to myself last year of why I couldn’t truly follow my happiness- I’m too busy, I’m too new to LA, I’m too afraid. This year I’m making a point to say yes to things that will truly add to my happiness, regardless of the fear and excuses that try to stand in my way. ✨
We are so excited to be back living in the east coast this year! Those wrap around porches and green trees bring us so much joy. East coast life is the best life! #eastcoastlifestyle
We had a really relaxing weekend- we were even able to fit in a DATE NIGHT 😍 We were planning on going some place fancy downtown PDX, but when we drove by a local New Seasons Market we thought, “that sounds nice.” And friends... IT WAS. 😍 Sean ordered wok, I had a spicy chicken salad, and we found the coziest little corner in the eatery to “dine” in. No distractions, no other customers there, we sat there for almost two hours and just talked. Talked about our goals, our fears, our joys, how we can pray for one another, funny Ireland stories, and so much more. All that to say, friends... date nights don’t always have to be a “fancy” or an exciting night out. It can be as simple as eating at your favorite grocery store in the quietest corner, and bringing it all back to what matters: fostering your friendship with your spouse. We left that little corner hand in hand- closer and more in love then before. What are YOUR favorite simple, but intentional date nights with your love?!
These beauties and their perfectly golden engagement session are up on the blog.
Should you hire a husband + wife team? 🙈 we may think so, but we are a little bias! Here’s two images from last summer when we shot Casey & Kaitlyns wedding. First photo is one I took (Catherine) taking it from the side of the steps and second photos is from Jonathan from afar showing an elegant entry into their venue. We love that we get to offer all of our brides photos from both perspectives! Not only do we get to give more photos to our clients, but it also allows us to separate and be in two places at once!

Sunnier times ☀️ I feel like Oregon’s Winter has been going on forever!
These two were so adorable and laughed the whole day...
right before our 30th sweat rag break, ugh so romantic.
gotta love shooting in a humid green house in palm springs in the dead of summer, yes I’m a psycho idiot #worthit
Would you guess that this dress was $27 on Amazon? BECAUSE IT WAS😭 I love a good bargain.
Who else likes pinning money on the newlyweds during their dollar dance?! 💸

Michael and Kristen’s wedding at Moli’i Garden at @kualoaranch
this weekend was one for the books!
Michael kept saying over and over again that he didn’t deserve Kristen, while she kept thanking him for loving her just the way she was!
Kristen’s mother officiated the wedding, and I had trouble keeping my tears in while they said their I Do’s on this beautiful day!

Just a couple of beautiful humans
For anyone that needs to hear this today: If you’re not 100% your best self right now, that’s ok. You can’t be all the time. Sometimes you need a break to recharge and come back full force. Being a creative is so mentally and emotionally draining sometimes and we need to be ok with stepping back from certain things. We got this!! 💛

thinking of ditching the cold + going to disneyland today. goals are good.
a favorite photo from a wedding in washington last year. basically right out of twilight, which means i was happy as a clam. #twilightforever
Wedding number 2 of the year is this weekend and I’m so excited. I’m also currently completely caught up with my editing which feels weird and amazing. Anyone know of any good hiking trails in San Diego? I want to take my boys for a hike.
They make crossing the street look so dang good! ⚡️
early morning walks always help to clear my mind + remind me of what’s important 🌱
It’s packing day! What are your must haves for going somewhere warm? It’s been years since we’ve had a warm beach trip. And by years, I think the last time was my honeymoon back in 2008.
So tell me all the things I need!
I have a bunch of new followers, so I’ve convinced myself that I can post another photo from this session and pretend it’s new. I can’t wait to get back here this summer!
sweetest couple at tonight’s engagement session.... 😻
